Power forward Shawntrez Davis has always showcased high-level athleticism. Now the Rivals150 big man is getting a chance to show off a more well-rounded game.
In Southern California last weekend for the Adidas Nations program, the 6-foot-9 power forward from East Point (Ga.) Tri Cities played at the highest level he'd played all summer.
"The first game I played well and from there it went well," Davis told Rivals.com. "I showed that I can run the floor, play defense and do lots of things."
Big and athletic, Davis ranks No. 122 overall in the class of 2015 and has started to add weight and strength to his frame. Primarily known as a dunker and rebounder in the past, he is showing that he has a bit more to his game.
"I can make a 15-foot jump shot," said Davis. "I can also dribble, get to the cup and score. I can play good defense."
On the recruiting front, Davis isn't lacking for attention. He lists offers from Connecticut, West Virginia, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Miami, Clemson, Tennessee, Mississippi State and Providence among others.
The next step is to set up visits and at this point, he has a few programs in mind that he would like to see.
"I think mid-September I will set up visits," said Davis. "I think I'd like to visit UConn, Providence, West Virginia and Mississippi State officially."
Still up in the air about whether to sign early or wait until the spring, Davis says his connection with his future coaches will be most important.
"The coaching staff is really going to be it," said Davis when asked what will be most important in making his choice. "I don't know yet whether I want to sign early or wait until the spring."
